Indiana Judicial Service Report: 2006 Volume III Financial Report

NCJ Number
Date Published
228 pages
This third volume of the 2006 Indiana Judicial Service Report contains financial data on the expenditures of Indiana's courts and the revenues generated through their operations, as well as the number of each type of court personnel and information on court reporter income.
Each court files the Report on Court Revenue and Report on Court Expenditures and Budget annually. This 2006 financial report presents only the expenditure and revenue data; the requested and approved budgets are available, but are not contained in this volume. All expenditures, regardless of their source, are reflected in this report. The report does not include expenses that are not directly related to court operation, such as the prosecuting attorney's office and the clerk's office. The Indiana Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, and Tax Court are funded through appropriations from the State general fund. The Indiana State Auditor's Report contains information on the expenditures by these courts and other State-level expenditures on judicial functions. Relevant portions of that report are presented in Volume I of the Judicial Service Report. Revenues are produced primarily from filing fees, court costs, fines, and user fees assessed the litigants. The revenues are disbursed to either the State, county, or local general fund, or to specific funds established by the Indiana Legislature for specific programs and services. The only direct payment fee is the personal service-of-process fee charged to small claims litigants in the Marion County Small Claims Courts. The number of each type of court personnel is presented by county as compiled from statistics submitted on the Report on Court Expenditures and Budget. The report also includes information on the funds collected by court reporters for preparation of transcripts for hearings and appeals. Tables and figures
